The Story

Rafael's piece for The Art of Sherlock Holmes USA is based on the story 'Sherlock Holmes and The Adventure of The Tainted Cannister' by Tom Turley. Thomas A. Turley has been “hooked on Holmes” since finishing The Hound of the Baskervilles at about the age of twelve.  His first Sherlockian pastiche, Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Tainted Canister, appeared as an MX e-book in 2014.  He has two stories (A Scandal in Serbia and A Ghost from Christmas Past) in The MX Anthology of New Sherlock Holmes Stories, Parts VI and VII.  Tom recently finished The Case of the Dying Emperor which will appear, along with “Serbia” and two new stories, in the forthcoming collection Sherlock Holmes and the Crowned Heads of Europe.  Although he has a Ph.D. in British history, Tom spent most of his career as an archivist with the State of Alabama.  He and his wife Paula are proud family members of two grown children, a beautiful new granddaughter, and a bossy little yellow dog.  

The piece has been released as an authenticated print by the Conan Doyle Estate.
